Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin:

We chose this cruise around the Caribbean sea because it matched up with our wedding date/time off for a honeymoon. We had a nice time, even though we were the youngest on the cruise by about 40 years. We did not take our teenage daughter, even if we had wanted to because on the ocean cruises your child must be over the age of 18.

The food was top notch, impeccable. The quality and the amenities were above par, the ports and excursions are the reason this review got 4 stars. The excursions were not great, and the ports of call were not what we expected either.

I cannot fault Viking Sky for the terrible weather conditions or the fact that we missed our trip to Bermuda because someone broke their hip- my husband enjoyed watching the coast guard helicopter come to pick up the passenger right outside our window.

Cabin Review

Cabin D- Upper Veranda

The room was rather spacious with a closet. The bathroom was elegantly designed. Small, but comfortable. We had two chairs and a desk in room. We also had the drink service because we paid for D category. I would say that was worth it. Turn down is twice a day, and your steward is good about making sure passengers are kept abreast of activities. The wall mounted flat screen TV was very nice, and the movie selection was top notch.

Port Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

It was a rainy day and the port was empty. It was an average embarkation, and they provided lunch to us while they were preparing our room. If you are not above 65, be prepared for cranky travelers and trouble getting up into the boat.

Hamilton

We went right past it as we we back to shore since a 90 year old woman broke her hip and they couldn't get the coast guard to come to where we were, so we traveled backward toward Norfolk, VA. Therefore we bypassed Bermuda and kept it moving.
